Josefiina Vannesluoma and Kenneth Jimenez: While You're Lonely
While you're lonely" is the name of the debut album by finnish singer Josefiina Vannesluoma and NYC based bassist Kenneth Jimenez. The music of this project embraces a world of textures and sounds that brings to life their improvisations, combining a wide range of possibilities that let's the music take off in different ways every time they perform.
